Diana Murinigo Dental Administrator I am pleased to work in an office that I could use my 17 years of dental administration experience in making sure that our patients are getting the finest customer service. I understand the importance of a comfortable and relaxed office environment, especially in New York City, where people are extremely busy and often stressed. I consider part of my job to make our patient’s lives easier, whether it be to give a quick call back in time of emergencies, helping them get the most reimbursement from their insurance or setting up a convenient financial arrangement so that they can afford the best care available. Our entire staff works together to make each visit the most pleasant experience possible and I’m proud to be part of our team.

Martha Arias Registered Dental Hygienist I have been a hygienist for 16 years and with Drs. Krochak and Perlman's practice for ten years. It's a perfect place for me because it fits my style -- being professional, caring, and warm. I think all of us on the team are focused on giving the best care in a calm atmosphere, and I feel I've done my part when clients follow my recommendations and compliment me on my "gentle touch." I've been lucky enough to have experience with all age groups from pediatrics to geriatrics, and in the end, they all want the same thing--trust in their hygienist and reassurance.

Jazmin Rodriguez Dental Assistant I think we're able to help people achieve a healthier mouth. Because we are kind and thoughtful during procedures, we make the experience positive. It's exciting to see patients who come in tentatively and leave eager to make their next appointment. When we are able to treat someone who has neglected dental care for some time, because of fear, monetary reasons, or other issues, it is rewarding to see them with restored gums, sound teeth, an improved bite, and a beautiful smile. I have a particularly vivid memory of a woman who told us that she is still learning to use the new smile we gave her after 50 years of not smiling, because she was ashamed of her teeth.

Charles C. Rivera Lead Dental Assistant I feel fortunate to be pursuing my career as a dental assistant in a place where I can learn the best techniques and participate in state-of-the art care. I've been a dental assistant for eleven years, and have learned to anticipate the doctors' every need during a procedure, so things run smoothly. Patients relax when they see that there are no hesitations and all instruments and materials are properly prepared. They see that we work as a team and they know they are getting excellent care. I think building trust and ease has two parts: performing well and creating a supportive, friendly atmosphere around the patient.
